Although Tasco telescopes are one of the major international distributors of telescopes, a number of serious amateur astronomers do not take them too seriously, simply because many of their scopes are sold through high street retail outlets.
Nevertheless Tasco produce a range of telescopes that continues to appeal to a wide audience of budding astronomers.
There are three categories of telescopes, the Novice, Luminova, and Spacestation , with a number of models in each series.
The Novice 60mm refractor is probably the most economical of the scopes, using manual focus and view finding. The moon and Jupiter are amazing through this scope.
Three eyepieces and a Barlow lens are included for optimum flexibility. This model is lightweight making it extremely portable so its possible to take it away on vacation as well.
While at the high end the Spacestation utilizes fully automated sky-mapping, and "GoTo" technology.
The magnification ranges between 25 and 675 times. Both reflection and refraction telescopes are available in each category.
Reflection telescopes are cheaper to fabricate and use mirrors to produce a low-resolution image to the viewer, whereas refraction scopes use high-quality lenses to focus light, presenting a much clearer and brighter image.
